Despite seeing pals leave, Hubilla out to finish job with San Beda

San Beda-Taytay recently underwent a massive overhaul, with key players and coaching staff leaving the team.

However, there was one player who remained steadfast in his commitment to the team.

Christopher Hubilla, a native of Sorsogon, chose to stay with San Beda despite the departures of his former teammates James Nacua, Mowell Moreles, and Vhoris Marasigan.

Hubilla’s passion for playing for San Beda and his desire to experience the NCAA Juniors league were the driving factors behind his decision to stay. He spoke about his dreams of playing for the mighty red school, stating, “Una sa lahat, pangarap ko na talaga dito eh.

“Nagbalik na rin ako kasi para makalaro. Para maexperience ko rin yung larong (NCAA) Juniors.”

Although the departures of Nacua, Marasigan, and Moreles were a huge loss for the team, Hubilla had nothing but praise for the trio.

”Si Cap, si Marasigan, sobrang masipag yun at dinidisiplina kami talaga. Si Nacua, sobrang talented rin nung bata na ‘yun,” shared Hubilla who scored 29 points, 15 rebounds, four assists, and four steals against Lyceum in their first game.

“Sobrang kawalan nila sa team.”

However, despite the losses, Hubilla remains optimistic about the team’s future. Despite the loss of their former coaching staff, he and the Red Cubs are determined to defend their championship title.

“Kung sa totoo lang, parang buo na kami eh tapos biglang mawawala yung mga coaches namin na dati.” he admitted.

“Pero sinisikap pa rin namin na kahit wala sila, nagpupursige kami na mabalik yung buo kami ulit.”

When asked about his future plans, Hubilla had no solid answers yet. His focus is solely on the team’s goal for this season, just as head coach Miko Roldan has instructed the team.

Christopher Hubilla’s unwavering commitment to his dreams and his love for the game make him a valuable asset to the San Beda-Taytay team.

“Sa ngayon po, wala pa po eh. Focus talaga muna kami [this season],” the Grade 12 senior said.

“Sabi nga ni Coach, focus na muna kami sa Juniors ngayon. Tiyaka na namin [pagusapan] pagkatapos ng season.”

Despite the departures of key players and coaching staff, Hubilla remains confident in the team’s ability to defend their championship title and make their mark in the NCAA Juniors Division.
